On Form

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Its not long before the new term starts and whether its back to school, college, uni or just back to work after the holidays, we have the best of our new in smart styles to get you ready.


The new school year often brings dread especially after lapping up the sunshine on holiday, but it isn’t all bad. You get new shoes, new stationary and if you are lucky a new bag that isn’t a tote you got free in a magazine.


Back in the day, shopping for new term shoes was the starter of stressful trips to the town centre and blazing rows with your mother in a busy store, but no more. Pretty much all styles are super cool these days and there is a style to suit every girl, in fact the “geekier” the style, the better it looks. The Clueless style Mary Janes and chunky lace ups are back and whether you are still at school or not, they look great with a tartan kilt, knitted jumper and ankle socks.

A style that dominated school corridors in the early nineties, the Wallabee is sure to be spotted this AW15 and you can get the look with our Vine Lace Up or if you want the original then Clarks is the way to go.

Go a bit grungy with our cleated sole Risk Mary Jane or Vagabond Kenova lace up and pair with a New Balance backpack with plenty of added badges and patches.

Add some prissy preppiness to your uniform with the quilted Cecilia Ballerina or the kiltie tassel Result pump, the girls at school will be quick to copy you.

If you love nothing more than visiting thrift stores in Brick Lane on the weekend then the retro Quaint monk shoe is the style for you and its so smart you will want to rock this out of the classroom with your cute vintage finds.

School has never looked this good and if you have left then you can easily rock these preppy styles this Autumn (and not have to go to class- Bonus!)




School Daze

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

With September around the corner and summer holidays coming to an end, it is the perfect excuse to get new shoes, accessories and stationary treats to show off at school.

We have taken some inspiration from classic TV shows and movies of the ’80s and ’90s that made school look like the coolest place to be.

Classics such as Saved by the Bell, Sweet Valley High and Clueless still manage to inspire fashion, with girls loving chunky t-bar flats, quilted ballerinas and the guys channelling their inner Zack Morris with varsity jackets and Nike Air Huarache’s.


Tomboys will love some Kickers brogues or Kennedy Lace Ups and can girl it up with some frilly or knee high socks and pleated skirt.

Showcase some Cher Horowitz style with a classic ballerina flat like the Karmen, or add a bit of height with the Gossip, both are sure to make you the most popular girl in school.

Bookworms will often be found in the library sporting some retro loafers like the Extravaganza and Volt Chain Slipper, but don’t underestimate the style of the ‘nerds’ as geek is most definitely chic.
